How to remove a drive in order to use it as parity?


Recommended Posts

Hello all! I have a 12TB drive that I want to use as my parity drive. It says there is 11.9 out of 12tb free, but I don't see anything in the file directory... when I tried to remove the drive, I got a red x that said "DEVICE IS DISABLED, CONTENTS EMULATED" so I panicked and re-assigned the drive. 

I have seen some articles but not sure that any really apply to me. I'm not sure why any data would be on the drive, I only added it to the data array temporarily because I couldn't add it to parity first. Any help would be appreciated!

 

Edit: Not pictured, but I currently do not have a parity drive
